We are very pleased to invite you to support general aviation in Minnesota and the United States of America by sponsoring, exhibiting and advertising at the 5th Annual Great Minnesota Aviation Gathering!

This event is sponsored by the Minnesota Pilots Association (MN Pilots), a 501(c)(3) non-profit, grass-roots organization whose mission is to promote and protect aviation in Minnesota through advocacy, education, outreach and social activities and by a number of business and aviation-related organizations.

The MN Pilots Association believes that pilots and supporters of aviation in Minnesota want and deserve an annual event, which will bring together people from across the state, and from neighboring states, to celebrate the joys and challenges of aviation.

The word is out…this event is not to be missed! We had over 800 people attend this two-day event in 2014 and 2015, over 900 in 2016, and 1,000 in 2017 – we expect an even greater attendance at the 5th Annual event.

About the Event
This year’s event will be held again in the spectacular Golden Wings Flying Museum (http://www.goldenwingsmuseum.com/), on the Anoka County-Blaine Airport. This wonderful living historical collection of close to 30 unique aircraft from America’s Golden Age of Aviation (1920s-1930s) serves as a unique backdrop for exhibitors.

We bring together a variety of aviation-related speakers, vendors, exhibitors and sponsors who provide up-to-date information and services to those who attend:
Hangar Flying Sessions – A variety of dynamic speakers provide a series of in-depth, provocative presentations on topics important to pilots and aviation enthusiasts, alike.
Exhibitors – Located in the Museum, exhibitor booths enable attendees to spend plenty of time visiting with vendors and organizations in an aviation environment that is second to none.
Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) – Chapter leaders from across the state gather to exchange ideas on how to get more children and adults involved in aviation.
David Schall, MD – Our Great Lakes Regional Flight Surgeon provides updates to aviation medical examiners and pilots on the medical aspects of aviation.

Exhibit Information
Sponsors, advertisers and exhibitors alike have provided feedback indicating what a great event the GMAG is and how important it is for them to be represented at the event.
Exhibit space is available for vendors, aviation community organizations and groups.
Located in the Museum, the space allows to visit with vendors and organizations in an aviation environment that is second to none.
The venue design creates a terrific incubator in which to educate and inspire the aviation community, and the public, on aviation technology, products and services.
